Cocktails with the Curator
2023 marks the 50th anniversary of Virginia’s most famous racehorse, Secretariat, winning the Triple Crown (1973). This feat had not been achieved since Citation in 1948. Secretariat's triumph captivated America, and its memory has become even more pronounced with time. Those who were witness to the Thoroughbred's victory set out to document this historic event in print, photo, and paint.
As a prelude to Derby weekend, please join us for Cocktails with the Curator for an in-depth tour of the exhibit with the George L. Ohrstrom, Jr. Curator of Library Collections, Dr. Colleen Yarger. After the tour, enjoy a reception with traditional Kentucky Derby beverages appropriate for Derby weekend.
